About Brandon Millate

Brandon J. Miliates primary research interests are the study of nationalism, ethno-national conflict, and indigenous self-determination in South and Southeast Asia. He received his B.A. with Honors in International Relations from the University of Southern California and his M.A. in Asia Pacific Policy Studies from The University of British Columbia. His dissertation will look at the use of territorial autonomy and ethno-federalism in Northeast India, Bangladesh, and Myanmar. Brandon is particularly passionate about area studies and ethnographic approaches to social science as a way of better understanding the historical and cultural context of ethnic minority and indigenous political demands.
